After the Election: Ideas for Teachers of ELLs
As they have been throughout the entire presidential campaign, teachers are on the front lines when it comes to answering students’ questions about the election and its results, giving them an opportunity to discuss what they see in the news, helping them think about how big decisions may affect their lives, and managing interactions among students representing different points of view and backgrounds.
In this new resource section, we have collected some helpful lesson plans as well as discussion guides for talking about the results of the 2016 election. We also offer suggestions for creating welcoming schools for all students. For more ideas, see the message below from Colorín Colorado contributor Kristina Robertson.
